    UNS vs. ADA

    So i thought the UNS and ADA tanks where the same except UNS had the 45 cut glass, so i liked them more. But i recently heard that ADA has much better glass. Is this true?

    Yes, ADA has much better glasses if you look at it carefully. A side by side comparison and you can tell ADA is so much more clear than UNS.

    I don't know if they use different quality glass, but on small tanks even regular-old glass with the green tint will give the same aquarium view as the pricier aquariums. It's only on larger tanks, as the aquarium glass gets thicker, that any difference is noticable (other than the color of the edge-on glass).

    ADA is way better than UNS even for a small tank. Nature Aquarium selling both of them. You can go checkout the different.

    I prefer the 45 angles of the UNS tanks. ADA tanks look cheap next to any of the new rimless 45 angle tanks

    UNS 3N - Wild-type Neos
